I said the terms "milk chocolate" and "chocolate bar" to you your first thought would probably be Hershey's. Sure, we're all aware that other chocolate and candy companies exist, but when you are talking about a pure chocolate candy bar with not other elements a lot of people may not even know that the Nestle company even produces such a product. After all it's not something that you see frequently on store shelves here in Indiana. It's not part of the "chocolate zeigeist" if such a douchey phrase actually existed. When I saw the Nestle Milk Chocolate bar for sale at the local Dollar Tree of all places I selflessly decided to try it out for your benefit and report to you my findings.
So what did I find out? I found out that it's pretty much a Nestle Crunch without the puffed rice to add the crunch. I thought in comparison to a Hershey bar that the Nestle bar was maybe slightly less sweet, but that's really only splitting hairs. They both taste like milk chocolate and they were both darn good. I'm so used to Hershey bars thought it was a little strange for me to not have the bar segmented into little rectangles that could be broken off. I think I prefer it that way as would any OCD chocolate connoisseur.
Taste 5/10 Just average here. Nothing to make me change my brand allegiance. I much prefer Nestle's Baby Ruth to their regular chocolate bar.
P.S. Apologies for torn packaging in the picture. The Girlfriend tried part of it before it dawned on me to take a picture.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere. Hey if you don't like it go blog at methodicaldudereallythinksalotaboutthefoodhesgoingtoeat.blogspot.com
